How to enable drill-down by default in Power BI?

Hi,

 

I have designed number of reports using Power BI desktop and uploaded them on PowerBI portal. My most of the reports have charts having drill-down feature. They work seamlessly and quite well. However, whenever a user opens any report through the PowerBI site, the drill-down is disabled by default, and user has to manually enable drill-down (by clicking on "Turn on drill-down" button). How can I publish my reports with drill-down enabled by default?

@nirman This is not the right forum to ask this question. Please move your question to Power BI Service forum.

I can confirm the behavior. It is impossible to save the status of the 'enable drill down' button in a report. Regardless of the status at save time, the functionality is always toggled off in reports accessed later.

 

This is confirmed in both the Desktop and Service report interfaces.

 

Make sure you send feedback through the feedback menu item about this behavior. Also feel free to submit it as an idea on this community site. Those are the official bug report and feature request media. The forum, while viewed by Microsoft employees is not the official avenue for these items. It's great to post here to share findings with other users, though, so thank you.

2 years later and this is still not available Smiley Sad shocking really. Has anyone figured out a work-around by any chance?
